Daredevils come out in support of Sehwag
New Delhi: At a time when a majority of the sports fraternity is gunning for Virender Sehwag`s head, his Indian Premier League franchise Delhi Daredevils have come out in support of the player.
Speaking at the launch of Daredevils `Superfans` here, the team`s mentor T.A. Sekar said: "Everybody goes through a bad patch, he will come back to India and score. He is a seasoned campaigner and I am sure he will do well in the upcoming matches. Viru is an uninhibited player, who sees the ball and hits."
Sehwag has been in woeful form in Australia. He has scored 35 runs in four matches at an average of 8.75 in the ongoing ODI tri-series involving Australia and Sri Lanka. In the Test matches against Australia, where the dashing opener played every game, he scored 198 runs in four matches averaging 24.75.
Delhi Daredevils, who finished last in IPL last year, have made some key changes to their team. They bought Sri Lankan captain Mahela Jayawardene and West Indian all-rounder Andre Russel in the IPL auction and also traded Englishman Kevin Pietersen from the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
